Not trying to hijack the thread, but what is considered breeding age? If you have young bulls in with heifers wouldn't their be concern of early maturing animals? Unless we are talking steers? Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying?Bonsman":29repcx4 said:I do the same thing as Dun. However, after they are backgrounded the heifers go to the heifer pasture and the bulls to the young bull pasture. I like to keep my young cattle together until they are breeding age. Then they go to the appropriate breeding pasture.
The culls or commercial cattle are backgrounded thrown into a pasture and then sold under a re-purchase agreement when they reach an appropriate weight.
